Bath Salts with Essential Oils

Bath Salts with Essential Oils

Makes approximately 500g of Bath Salts

What you need:
* 480g of Sea Salts [Fine or coarse, or a mixture of the two]
* 20g Bicarbonate of Soda [not baking soda, it’s different]
* 4ml of your chosen essential oil [See further down for a rough guide]
* A tablespoon of dried flowers/petals/herbs to match the oil scent
* A couple of drops of food colouring [just enough to tint the salts lightly]
* An airtight glass jar

Method:
– Mix the salts and Bicarbonate of Soda in a large bowl until well blended.
– Add the colouring [just a tiny bit] and mix in until all the salts are evenly coloured to a pastel shade.
– Drip the essential oil evenly over the surface of the salts and mix thoroughly. You may find that the colour will deepen.
– Leave the salts in the bowl overnight so that the fragrance can be absorbed.
– The next day, once the salts have dried, stir again until they are free-flowing, then add your herbs/petals.
– Spoon into a large airtight jar. For a creative twist, fill the jar with alternating layers of salts and petals.

That’s it! Easy peasy.
Some good combinations:

Patchouli essential oil and dried Patchouli leaves – Money-drawing & Energising.
Carnation Essential oil and dried Carnation petals – Love, health and magickal energy.
Peppermint Essential oil and dried or fresh mint leaves – Purification & stimulation.
Geranium Essential oil and dried Rose petals/buds – Happiness & protection.
Lavender Essential oil and dried Lavender flowers – Calming & peaceful.
Neroli Essential oil – Joy & aphrodisiac.
Sandalwood Essential oil – Meditation & spirituality.
Ylang Ylang Essential oil – Love & aphrodisiac.
Lime & Ginger Essential oils – Stimulating & energising.

Spell for Today

Thursdays are good days for travel and change. It’s the perfect day to re-arrange the furniture of your house and gain a new perspective on something. Even if you are not able to do any traveling on this day, you can still use Thursdays to do spells for travel. You can even do spells for positive change, and re-arrangement of your life. It’s a good idea to exercise on this day, as well. That way, your body can be in-shape by the time Friday comes

 

Positive Change Spells – Write Change Spells

Things you will need:
1 sheet of paper
1 pen or pencil
1 green candle
1 lighter or match
Light the green candle and think about how you want your life to change. When you are ready, draw a cross symbol on the sheet of paper with the pen or pencil. Label each corner of the cross with the first letter of the four directions on Earth. For example: “N” for North and “E” for East. Above the cross, write the word, “CHANGE.” Now, take your pen or pencil and place it in the center of the cross. Draw a swirl, counter-clockwise, three times. Then, take the pen back to the center of the cross and draw, clockwise, three times. Now, blow out the candle. After doing that fold the paper up and safely burn it or toss it in a body of water. After a few days, you should feel the changes you wanted to start happening.

 

Re-arrange Spells – Bouquet Re-arrange Spell

3 different kinds of flowers
1 vase
Get three different kinds of flowers and place them in a vase. Take a deep look at them and, then, step back for a few minutes. Walk back up to the flowers and re-arrange them. Then, say this chant three times:

 

“Flowers to move.
Life to re-arrange.
I need things to be different.
I need things to change.
What was over here,
Now, is over there.
What I need to spin around,
Soon, will have new flare.”

 

After about a week or so, you will notice a good deal of the re-arrangement you wanted.

tbsp rosemary leaves

1/2 tsp ground cinnamon

Spell for Today – Herbal Witches Cleansing Bottle

 

To make an herbal cleansing bottle, pour a layer of sand in a large clear bottle.

Add layers of dried herbs, one at a time: first rosemary; then lemon peel, sage, cedar, black peppercorns, lavender, dill, bay leaf, and rowan.

When the bottle is full, focus cleansing protective energy into the herbs and sand, and see a golden light radiating from the bottle. Visualize the herbs driving away negative influences.

Cork and seal the bottle with white wax (or another color of your choice).

Using a permanent marker, draw the Algiz rune on one side of the bottle, and on the other side draw a pentagram.

Set the bottle near your front or back door, and every six months, uncap, pour the herbs out into the woods or your compost heap, and thoroughly wash and dry the bottle before filling it with a new round of herbs.

One Way to Get Back in Sync with Your Body, Spirit and Faith

Originally posted in 2016.

As many of my regular readers know the last few weeks have been very hard for me because of the first anniversary of my mom’s crossing into the Summerlands. I allowed myself to get completely ungrounded, uncentered, as well as not doing my morning or evening prayers (yes many witches/pagans do pray). I was so far out of balance that even with being pagan and a witch for 39 years I could not unblock my own chakras, find my center or completely ground myself as my mind was in a deep depression and my heart still felt broken over losing my mom. Losing her also brought the pain back from losing my dad in 1970.

How did I get through this time? By asking the Elders of our coven to help me. I feel you never learning everything you might need to know in The Craft and it does not hurt to ask those more learned in aspects of it that you know little or nothing about. I also feel when you have tried different ways to help yourself and nothing has helped, no matter what the problem is you are dealing with, ask for help.

One Exercise for Ridding Chakras of Negativity:

Go outdoors. Step barefoot into the grass, dirt, sand, rocks or whatever type of ground is convenient for you to do this exercise on. Plant your feet firmly about shoulder width apart on Mother Earth. (I prefer to be facing directly into the Sun as Ra is my patron God.)

Lift your arms over your head with palms facing upward towards the sky.

Ask the Universe to send positive energy through your hands to push the negative energy out through your feet into Mother Earth. To be cleansed by her and released to where she wants it to go.

The mantra that was suggested by High Priestess Streggga was “I will allow myself to heal and be healed.” You can recite whatever you think will help your specific situation. If you are not what the words for your mantra should be…ask High Priestess Lady Beltane Sage or Lady Silver Sage for help. Do not think it will be a bother to us that is what we are here for.

There is no time limit on how long or how often you should do this exercise.

This will cleanse your chakras, help to balance and ground you. For centering you should do a mediation that has you look into yourself to see what is making you out of balance. During your meditation is also a great time to ask your spirit guides and ancestors to help you through whatever it is that has you out of whack.

How to Cleanse Objects Using the Elements

The following should be used to cleanse any object for Magickal use and jewelry you buy or get as a gift. Be it a Ritual tool, amulet for protection or other need, any object to be charmed/enchanted for a specific reason. It can also be used on any jewelry or any other gift your receive.

The purpose for this is to rid the object of anyone else’s energy who may have handled at some point in
time. Thus it will only have your personal and Universal energies attached to it, making the object totally
yours.

This should also be done if anyone besides you picks up and/or touches the object. It should also be done to a black stone weekly if it has been empowered to collect negative energies to ensure it is always at its peak of power to collect negativity before it gets overloaded and leaks onto and/or into you and.or someone else.

What you will need:

The object to be cleansed

Small bowl of water

Regular table salt without Iodine if possible

Feather

White candle

Small white cloth

How to cleanse any object:

Fill in the blanks with the proper element or object depending on where the blank is in the sentence.

If you are cleansing a stone, crystal, gem, semi-precious gem the wording it change to say for each element, “______ I ask you to remove all energies but mine and the _______.”

Add the salt to the water. place the object in the salt water with your power hand (the hand you write with). Then say three times, ” Earth and Water I ask you to remove all energy but my own from this ______”. Take it out of the salt water with your power hand. WARNING: Some gems and crystals should not be left sitting in any type of water. For those things sparingly sprinkle them with the salt water (Earth/Water Element) on all sides.

Place the object on the white cloth. With your power hand pick up the feather. Wave it over the stone saying three times, “Air I ask you to remove all energy but my own from this _______”. Turn the object over and repeat until all outside surface has been done.

Light the white candle then pick the object up in your power hand. Move the object over the top of the flame (being careful not to burn yourself) saying three times, “Fire I ask you to remove all outside energies from this ________”. Turn the stone over and repeat until all outside surface has been done.. Place the object back on the white cloth and blow out the candle.

The white cloth represents Spirit. While an object is laying on the cloth cover it with part of the cloth. Say over it three times, “Spirit I ask you to remove all energies but my own from this ______.”
